> Mdraid10 actually allows for a 3 drive raid10 set. It isn't raid10 per say but a raid level based on distributing copies of chunks around the spindles for redundancy.

Isn't this what they call RAID 1e (RAID 1 Enhanced), which needs a 
minimum of 3 drives?

This seems to me a much better name for it than calling it "RAID 10"...
